Facilities

The factories are dedicated to the design, production and testing of offshore mooring ropes and specialty products such as deepwater installation ropes. Modern production and testing equipment permits all the following activities to be undertaken in-house:

  • Stranding of base yarn into strands
  • Braiding or twisting of strands into sub-ropes
  • Application of soil ingress filters
  • Production of braided jacket material (twisted yarn / cut resistant tape)
  • Closing (over braiding) of sub-ropes into mooring ropes
  • Length Measurement System (LMS) under tension up to 30 tonnes
  • Length marking under tension in 75 m increments
  • Axial (anti-twist) line marking
  • Full scale proto-type testing:
    • Break strength testing up to 1,200 tonnes       
    • Tension-tension fatigue testing
    • Stiffness and elongation testing
    • Simulation of installation and “What If” scenarios
    • Cut resistant jacket testing
    • Linear density testing.

PORTUGAL

The Lankhorst Offshore site of 6,000 m2 is located in Viana do Castelo, Portugal and became operational in September 2012. It is the most modern factory worldwide dedicated to the production of ropes for the offshore industry. Positioned near the port of Viana do Castelo, the facility is well suited to produce heavy deepwater mooring ropes.

Next to this facility we have factories in Maia and Paredes. 

The company entered the deepwater tether market in 1998. The recent commissioning of a new reel take-up stand brings our capacity to handle single piece weights of up to 250 tonnes gross (rope and reel).

BRAZIL

The production facility of Lankhorst Euronete Brasil covers around 10,000m2 in an 17,000m2 property in the industrial site of Queimados in Rio de Janeiro with easy access to the ports of Rio de Janeiro and Sepetiba. The company started production of deepwater mooring ropes in 2012. Production capacity was doubled in 2015 with the addition of a complete new production line using state-of-the-art machinery.
